Team Punzal Vision completed our 4th annual Ultimate Hawaiian Trail Run! With last year’s run being canceled due to COVID, we were extra excited for this year! We had no idea what to expect but of course, we took all the necessary precautions to ensure a safe and fun experience for everyone.
Friday, the day before the race, we all took a trip down to Poipu to pick up our race packets. It was nice to see all of the kids, adults, and old friends from previous trail run years. We made sure to fuel up, sleep early, and get ready for the next morning.
Saturday morning, race day, we were there EXTRA early! Dr. Punzal always likes to be the "first ones" there and doesn’t want to miss any of the action! This also gave us a chance to stretch and prepare for what was ahead. This year, everyone did the individual 10k run (or hike). The distance of the trail is always a little longer than they say but it was even longer than our usual 5k we've done in the past.
Keahi came in first place, woohoo! Karl came in second, and Dr. Punzal came in third. But we all did our best and kept pushing until the very end! We couldn’t have done it without the support of each other and everyone around us. We all had such a blast and can’t wait for next year!”
